Rhythm and Attention Control

Dancing is a common expression of rhythm when listening to music. In this setting, dancing presents an activity that combines movement with rhythmic engagement. Combining motor and auditory activity when engaging in music increases neural plasticity as it strengthens the individual’s attention network. Researchers from Southwestern Oklahoma University and the University of Kansas found that the combination of movement (walking) with rhythmic engagement (either small percussion instrument or singing) led to an improvement in attention function for people with dementia, which is a particular area of difficulty. Our silent discos combine familiar music with maracas to maximize these neuronal connection. Full Study.

Benefits of Musical Engagement

Researchers at the University of Helsinki in Finland looked at the long-term effects of daily musical exposure (listening and singing) to see how these effects might compare to short-term findings. They found that regular musical listening can be beneficial in multiple areas of cognitive functioning, general mood, and episodic memory (memory of past personal experiences) of the people with dementia. They also found that singing enhanced their short-term and working memory in addition to the emotional health of their family members. Our silent discos make meaningful engagement with music easier, encouraging patients to sing along to familiar music. Full Study.
